Tundra’s Immersive Light Installation Puts Visitors Side-By-Side A Swimming Whale

1

Tundra collective has infilled the D Museum in Seoul with an immersive, interactive installation made up of thousands of luminous hexagonal cells. ‘My whale (inner revision)’ comprises a series of projectors that beam colored light onto a curved wall surrounding visitors, forming an audio-visual effect that brings the sounds of a whale to life. The patterns and accompanying sounds give viewers an experience akin to swimming alongside whales, encountering their vibrations and singing.

Giant 13-Foot Robot Lets You Crawl Inside to Control It, Could be Start of the Gundam Program

Hajime 13-Foot Robot Crawl Inside

Osaka-based Hajime Research Institute could have unknowingly started the Gundam program by building a giant 13-foot tall, 660-pound robot that humans control from the inside. The ultimate goal is to one day build a walking, human-controlled robot that stands 59-feet high. The control system of this prototype is based on a master-slave system, which is essentially just a smaller version of the robot inside that can be manipulated - turning its head with a small twist of the model's, etc. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny autocorrect texts gallery. Continue reading for a viral video of an 80s game that might've been designed by the CIA for mind control purposes.

Hypnotic Ocean Lagoons Composed Of Rolled Colorful Paper By Amy Genser

1

Oceans reefs are stunning example of how land and water converge at one destination to create beautiful contrasts in texture, color, movement and life.

Artist Amy Genser believes that the rugged and sculptued lands of mother nature can create a more compelling effect when it battles the tide of the sea. The Connecticut based artist assembles rolls of mulberry paper to form perfect imitations of coral formations. The beauty of a flourishing unrestricted growth of the ocean from within is an incredible project allowing the world to the true potential if nature without human intervention.

Teamlab Brilliantly Illuminated Historic Shrine In Kyoto Forests And Its Surrounding

1

The ancient sanctuary, Shimogamo Shrine and its neighbouring forest has been illuminated in two brilliant interactive light displays by Teamlab.

More info: Teamlab (h/t: thedesigndome)

The path to the historic site is lit up by animated trees titled “Resonating Trees” which leads visitors to the second exhibition of giant interactive light orbs, “Resonating Spheres”, which hums with music in response to the visitor’s touch. Music, motion and light are constantly changing with the participants in the environment around the Sakura Gate of the shrine – the installation functions as a chain of harmonious notes and radiance emitted throughout the peaceful sanctuary.

The forest too sings and fades into a dazzle of shimmering colors as it senses presences approach. The lighted shrine grounds is animated comically – the gentle and ethereal muted lighted to signifying prayer and meditation which usually accompanies shrines is mildly transformed with the introduction of vivid orbs emitting powerful light of every color on the spectrum. The interactive light display installation by Teamlab creates a festive and magical atmosphere without disturbing the sanctity of the isolated shrine.

2016 UK Wildlife Photographer Of The Year Finalists

2


Nosy neighbour by Sam Hobson, UK. Sam knew exactly who to expect when he set his camera on the wall one summer’s evening in a suburban street in Bristol, the UK’s famous fox city. He wanted to capture the inquisitive nature of the urban red fox in a way that would pique the curiosity of its human neighbours about the wildlife around them.

Collective courtship by Scott Portelli, Australia. Thousands of giant cuttlefish gather each winter in the shallow waters of South Australia’s Upper Spencer Gulf for their once-in-a-lifetime spawning. Males compete for territories that have the best crevices for egg‐laying and then attract females with mesmerising displays of changing skin colour, texture and pattern. Rivalry among the world’s largest cuttlefish – up to a metre (3.3ft) long – is fierce, as males outnumber females by up to 11 to one. (Photo by Scott Portelli/2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Playing pangolin by Lance van de Vyver, New Zealand/South Africa. Lance had tracked the pride for several hours before they stopped to rest by a waterhole, but their attention was not on drinking. The lions in South Africa’s Tswalu Kalahari Private Game reserve had discovered a Temminck’s ground pangolin. This nocturnal, ant-eating mammal is armour-plated with scales made of fused hair, and it curls up into an almost impregnable ball when threatened. (Photo by Lance van de Vyver/2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


The disappearing fish by Iago Leonardo, Spain. In the open ocean, there’s nowhere to hide, but the lookdown fish – a name it probably gets from the steep profile of its head, with mouth set low and large eyes high – is a master of camouflage. Recent research suggests that it uses special platelets in its skin cells to reflect polarised light (light moving in a single plane), making itself almost invisible to predators and potential prey. The platelets scatter polarised light depending on the angle of the sun and the fish, doing a better job than simply reflecting it like a mirror. (Photo by Iago Leonardo/2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Splitting the catch by Audun Rikardsen, Norway. Sometimes it’s the fishing boats that look for the killer whales and humpbacks, hoping to locate the shoals of herring that migrate to these Arctic Norwegian waters. But in recent winters, the whales have also started to follow the boats. Here a large male killer whale feeds on herring that have been squeezed out of the boat’s closing fishing net. He has learnt the sound that this type of boat makes when it retrieves its gear and homed in on it. The relationship would seem to be a win-win one, but not always. (Photo by Audun Rikardsen/2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Thistle-plucker by Isaac Aylward, UK. Isaac composed this alpine-meadow tableau with the sea of soft purple knapweed behind, accentuating the clashing red of the linnet’s plumage. He was determined to keep pace with the linnet that he spotted while hiking in Bulgaria’s Rila Mountains, finally catching up with the tiny bird when it settled to feed on a thistle flowerhead. From the florets that were ripening, it pulled out the little seed parachutes one by one, deftly nipped off the seeds and discarded the feathery down. (Photo by Isaac Aylward/2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Termite tossing by Willem Kruger, South Africa. Termite after termite after termite – using the tip of its massive beak-like forceps to pick them up, the hornbill would flick them in the air and then swallow them. Foraging beside a track in South Africa’s semi-arid Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, the southern yellow-billed hornbill was so deeply absorbed in termite snacking that it gradually worked its way to within 6 metres (19ft) of where Willem sat watching from his vehicle. (Photo by Willem Kruger/2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Blast furnace by Alexandre Hec, France. When the lava flow from Kilauea on Hawaii’s Big Island periodically enters the ocean, the sight is spectacular, but on this occasion Alexandre was in for a special treat. Kilauea (meaning “spewing” or “much spreading”) is one of the world’s most active volcanoes, in constant eruption since 1983. As red-hot lava at more than 1,000˚C (1,832˚F) flows into the sea, vast plumes of steam hiss up, condensing to produce salty, acidic mist or rain. (Photo by Alexandre Hec/2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Golden relic by Dhyey Shah, India. With fewer than 2,500 mature adults left in the wild, in fragmented pockets of forest in northeastern India (Assam) and Bhutan, Gee’s golden langurs are endangered. Living high in the trees, they are also difficult to observe. But, on the tiny man-made island of Umananda, in Assam’s Brahmaputra River, you are guaranteed to see one. Site of a temple dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, the island is equally famous for its introduced golden langurs. Within moments of stepping off the boat, Dhyey spotted the golden coat of a langur high up in a tree. (Photo by Dhyey Shah/2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Crystal precision by Mario Cea, Spain. Every night, not long after sunset, about 30 common pipistrelle bats emerge from their roost in a derelict house in Salamanca, Spain, to go hunting. Each has an appetite for up to 3,000 insects a night, which it eats on the wing. Its flight is characteristically fast and jerky, as it tunes its orientation with echolocation to detect objects in the dark. (Photo by Mario Cea Sanchez/2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year)


Swarming under the stars by Imre Potyó, Hungary. Imre was captivated by the chaotic swarming of mayflies on Hungary’s River Rába and dreamt of photographing the spectacle beneath a starlit sky. For a few days each year (at the end of July or beginning of August), vast numbers of the adult insects emerge from the Danube tributary, where they developed as larvae. On this occasion, the insects emerged just after sunset. At first, they stayed close to the water, but once they had mated, the females gained altitude. Winners will be announced on 18 October.

大規模火災の煙の中から姿を現した巨大な霊(アメリカ)

0_e28


 アメリカ、アイダホ州ヘンリークリーク周辺で先週、大規模な山火事が発生した。約20324ヘクタールを燃やし尽くしたというその火災にはジャネット・エンペイさんが所有する牧場も含まれていた。

 火の勢いはとどまらず、自宅の15メートル付近にまで迫っていたが、消防士らの消火作業によりすんでのところで食い止められた。祈るしかなくなすすべがなかったエンペイさんは火事の様子を撮影することに。するとどうだろう。火事現場の木の上に巨大な霊のようなものがうつりこんでいたのである。
